Does anyone know what options they have for edge dressing? I've only seen black, and natural (no dressing whatsoever). Does anyone know if they have a mid level//brown

Yes, they do. From their very own website:

I personally think the burnishing spot on. It's well balanced and proportional to the size of the shoes. I find the EG burnishing can be rushed at times.

Did Vass do this themselves?

Nope. I did it myself. :) 

Unfortunately, Vass doesn't offer antiquing at all anymore.

According to Notch, yes. You could get it upon request apparently.

Browsed through the Vass website and liked style #89 which is a derby boot on the New Peter. I am not familiar with this last and it looks like a nice casual last (especially compared to the F & U). For those that have the New Peter, do you find the fit tigher, like smart shoes, or more 'relaxed' like country lasts. Thanks for any input!

Looking for a last closer to C&J 325 and less Tricker's 4497. Thanks for any input!

The other SA in the store was just as helpful.

They have a broad selection that's quite impressive. The only shoes that didn't appeal to me were the exotics (i.e., gators/crocs, ostrich, etc.). Of course they'll make whatever you like.

I was looking in particular for a blucher in shell, and found exactly what I wanted: a punched cap toe in burgundy on the 3636 last with lasted shoe trees. I may go back before I leave, but if not, I know I'll be ordering more.

Can't say enough how pleased I was with the shopping experience. The SA's, especially the one who assisted me most, provided exemplary service.
Now, I hope you tried on every last in your size so you don't have to post a question about the fit when you get back home. tongue.gif

Have to agree. The service is excellent, and even if you can't go to the store yourself, Mr. Kuti is very patient and helpful in providing you with a shoe via e-mail. I'm a huge fan.

I was thinking of getting an austerity brogue, does anyone think it would look weird on the p2 because it's a more chunky last than the F or the U?

Attention all you museum calf fans out there! Emailed Rezsö the following on Tuesday:

"Also, have you managed to replace the two "Museum calf" leathers from Ilcea with another supplier yet?"

Rezsö's answer yesterday:

"Dear Andreas!

Thank you for your email!
Yes, I am currently working on it. It seems that we will have the leather again later this year!
I can contact you next week already with the results!

Kind regards,

Rezső Kuti
Sales Manager"
